  • Replied in Canon SX10 IS
    The asker may not have kept up with camera development and asks what in its day was a very pertinent question. I was involved in the now defunct but wonderful S5IS user forum when the SX10 came on ...
  • I've still got the SX10 in good shape. I never use Auto ISO and have no idea what it is supposed to do, so this interested me to experiment walking around the house and focusing in different lighting.
  • Always, a matter of taste, and sometime the particular use of the image. Compositionally and in terms of background I only really like the third one, which probably could be brightened / saturated ...
  • Don't own the camera, but the CHDK "hack" permits simultaneous RAW/DNG and JPEG shots, and has the advantage of retaining all the func/set settings for the JPEG, where Canon's "native" RAW/JPEG ...
  • I'd suggest the difference is less about the two software applications than about the choices / familiarity of the user in using them. You could have achieved pretty much the same result for ...
  • Very nice shot. FWIW, my experience is the CHDK RAW/DNG adds a lot of low light capability to non-RAW cameras that could only be replicated with "HDR" brackets and a lot of post-processing. Since ...
  • Sidewalk Sculpture - Queen West, Toronto Queen St. West, Toronto, yesterday.  I can vouch for authenticity, since the cement block on the left collapsed to the sidewalk seconds after I shot.  (Lots ...
  • People have their own criteria for RAW (in my case CHDK DNG) versus JPEG in Powershots.  I'd differentiate the question of Auto mode:  while the new Digic processors keep improving IS, autofocus, ...
  • You may be quite right. Though there's a fair amount of oil, gunk etc. in seawater that distilled water wouldn't clean. They're not really mutually exclusive. In fact, a virtue of the solvent is ...
  • I own SX10. With a couple of serious drink spills on computer keyboards I had excellent experience with electrical contact cleaner spray, available at shops like Radio Shack. I also had a bit of a ...
  • The thing about RAW is post-processing can do miracles with marginally underexposed images but nothing saves a white-out.  I think it's over-exposed with blown-out unrecoverable detail in the ...
  • Be a bit careful - my daughter shoots professionally in Montreal and says Quebec laws about non-consent street photography can be difficult. http://canlii.ca/t/1fqt7 Best to get permission, or not, ...
  • Looks like you've got some sophisticated cameras of your own and may be familiar with RAW.  As opposed to futzing with M'lady's JPEGs, why not keep it simple and set the camera to RAW plus JPEG.  ...
  • It's an excellent "sunny day zoomer".  My personal hope is that Canon will look at the retail success and reviews of the Panazonic FZ200 at a higher price point, and do some hard work on the slow ...
  • Glad it worked.  Hang on to that S5, especially for low light.  SX50 is a great sunny day zoomer but she may be shocked at how much smaller the Av is at the same focal length as the S5 (of course ...
  • Replied in Manual v Auto
    You seem to own a lot of cameras to be asking such a question.  Hope you're not buying another camera every time Auto doesn't work right.
  • Yes you're right. I hadn't noticed it.  It's not a Menu setting but apparently the focus check is one of the views that rotates if you press DISP  during the post-shot review. On my S5 a focus ...
  • On my S5IS (which I still like to use) the only focus blowup is for MF-Point Zoom (toggle in main menu) and that's only while physically adjusting the focus in MF.  There's no review focus box ...
  • I'd take the SX50 over the FZ70 in a blink. To me the issue is excellent "sunny day zoom" and many other Canon virtues of the SX50, versus hand held performance in lower light and the EVF of the ...
  • You don't mention what, if anything, you already own or what you might want to shoot with a new one.  The SX50 is about as good as it gets for a "sunny day zoomer" and it's going for a very good ...
